Historical temple, children of peace (Quakers) There are other historical buildings on site. Candle light tour in the fall of the year and illumination in September is quite the experience

Really neat building. Surrounding land also contains various homesteads and relevant structures. A lot of history about the temple and its people is available. Worthwhile to pack a picnic and spend an afternoon checking it out.
